The Progressive Era

The Progressive Era

by Faith Jaycox




Marking the Progressive Era as spanning the period from 1890, the year the frontier was declared closed in the West, to 1920, when women first voted in a presidential election, Jaycox (M.A., English, U. of Pittsburgh) presents a history of the time that combines narrative description with excerpts of firsthand accounts of the period from diaries, memoirs, letters, speeches, literature, magazines, newspapers, and speeches, as well as select historical documents such as the Monroe Doctrine, Plessy v. Fergusson, and ratified constitutional amendments. It also includes capsule biographies of some 200 key figures, a collection of maps, and a non- annotated bibliography.
